Issue Position

It is not government's task to create jobs. Instead, government should enact policies that support business growth, which will lead to good, new jobs. The trillion-dollar Stimulus not only failed to deliver jobs, it plunged our nation further into debt. America levies the 3rd highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world, which stifles growth and job creation.

I propose:

-Reducing the corporate tax rate so businesses can compete in the global economy and stay in the U.S.

-Continuing tax credits for investments in new plants and equipment

-Supporting investment in emerging technologies like renewable energy

-Supporting/adopting policies that allows New Hampshire's largest employer, small businesses, to prosper and grow.
